This recipe stemmed from a request for Oreo cake. I couldn't find a recipe I liked elsewhere so modified the Wilton pound cake recipe and it's become one of my most requested flavors.
DARK CHOCOLATE OREO CAKE
1 Duncan Hines Dark Chocolate Fudge Cake Mix
1 pkg. Chocolate pudding (4 serving size)
4 eggs, slightly beaten
1/3 Cup oil
1 Cup water
9 Oreo cookies, cut in small pieces (I use a knife - not a food processor because I want chunks, not crumbs)
1 Cup semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
Mix together first 5 ingredients with an electric mixer for 30 seconds on low to incorporate and then on medium for 2 minutes to add the right amount of volume. Fold in oreos and chocolate chips. Bake according to your pan's directions. Makes about 6 cups of batter.
This is a very dense cake. I usually pair it with White Chocolate Mousse filling which is lght and fluffy so is a nice compliment. It works great as the bottom tier of a wedding cake since it is structurally dense.
Is the white chocolate mousse recipe on here as well? :)
With the white chocolate mousee filling does this cake need to be refrigerated?
I've frosted it in both vanilla and chocolate buttercream. The killer is chocolate buttercream with a layer of ganache on the top. Theres a photo in my album of that.

this cake sounds sooo good. What do you do for icing for this cake?
Would I be able to serve this mousse in a little dish and then with some dk chocolate shavings or something? I have tried so many white chocolate mousse recipes and can not find one that even compares to what I am looking for. On my honeymoon, my husband had a white chocolate mousse and loved it (doesn't usually care for dessert) & I have been trying to find something close to it.
